A note from Colley Case:
When you shop at Ingles grocery stores, you can help Resurrection Preschool.  If we have your name and 12-digit Advantage number, then every time you show your card at Ingles, a small percentage of your purchase will be donated to the school for educational materials at no cost to you.  Last year, we were able to purchase $800 worth of learning materials.  Please fill out the form that will be available at the church or in your mailbox.  This form must be completed every year to keep the donation active.  If you have questions, call Cassie at 706-865-9682.  Thanks!

The Youth Group meets each Sunday 
(except the first Sunday) at 9:30 a.m.  

We need youth volunteers to help at the Fall Festival on October 26th. Wear a costume if you like, but please, nothing scary.

His Eye Is on the Sparrow
A solo by Elizabeth Cochran

Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven and home,
When Jesus is my portion? My constant friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

I sing because I'm happy,
I sing because I'm free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

"Let not your heart be troubled," His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path He leadeth, but one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

I sing because I'm happy,
I sing because I'm free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing, when hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him, from care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

I sing because I'm happy,
I sing because I'm free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

The Story Behind His Eye is on the Sparrow
Civilla Martin was born in Nova Scotia in 1866. Her husband was an evangelist who traveled all over the United States. She accompanied him and they worked together on most of the musical arrangements that were sung. 

In 1904 Civilla was visiting an ill, bedridden friend. Although discouraged and sick, her friend remembered that God, her Heavenly Father, was watching over each little sparrow and would certianly watch after her. Matthew 10:29-31: "Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father's care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows."

Mrs. Martin was a poet and thought this would be a perfect idea for a poem. She jotted down the idea and by the end of the day, had completed "His Eye is On The Sparrow".

The entire poem was sent to a well-known composer of that day, Charles Gabriel. His lovely music has carried it all around the world in small churches and great crusades. Ethel Waters is remembered for her great rendition of this song, when she sang and gave her testimony at many Billy Graham Crusades.

Grandparents Day at Resurrection Preschool

Did you know there is an exercise class at Resurrection?
You are invited to join these lovely ladies each Tuesday at 10:00 a.m.

Our world is hurting, and we must come together to sow the love of Jesus in a broken world. What does Love in Action look like? Together, we can respond to living into our call to serve Jesus and love as He loves the unwelcome, the disenfranchised, the lost, and the found.

Join Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry, the Royal Wedding Preacher, and Bishop Rob Wright of the Diocese of Atlanta, and Episcopalians, friends, and seekers who are following the call to open their hearts, minds, and doors to the concerns of our state and country, especially people who feel vulnerable and unwelcome.

Presiding Bishop Curry has stirred the whole church to take its place in The Way of Love: the community of people who follow Jesus and form loving, liberating, and life-giving relationships with God, their neighbors, and the environment.

All are invited. All are welcome.
Come experience Love in Action.

All attendees registered before Nov. 1 will be guaranteed seating at ReviveATL. 
After Nov. 1, seating is not guaranteed.
